Inter Miami are not, however, to start their involvement in the USA’s top division before 2020, and Beckam hopes to lure the Argentine superstar across the Atlantic then. By that time, Messi will have turned 33 and have only a year remaining on his current Barcelona contract unless a new agreement is made by then. The buyout clause set for the five-times Balon d’Or winner is a staggering £626 million.
Northcroft claims the view is that at that time, with just a year remaining on the deal and Messi set to turn 34 soon afterwards, the goal of signing one of the greatest players in recent times might become plausible, and that it would also boast a certain demographic appeal given the high Hispanic and South American population in Florida.
